The Kentish Lady river boat offers a unique experience of the River Medway from 1 hour trips to 3 hour cruises and is also the perfect setting for a private party.

As the river weaves its way through Maidstone there is history around every corner and the best way to see the sights and splendour of this great county town is through the huge glass windows from the comfort of your own seat.

The River Medway provides a beautiful backdrop and the Kentish Lady can cater for every occasion. From disco parties afloat, wedding receptions, birthday and anniversary parties, to social gatherings for WI, Masonic and Active Retirement Groups. We can provide a wide variety of buffets, DJ, decorations and champagne to enhance your special occasion.

The stable catamaran design has a single level deck providing good access for less mobile passengers/wheelchairs and has excellent facilities including ladies and gents washrooms, heating and a fully licensed bar. While waiting for the boat to dock you can relax and enjoy the scenery at Cruisers Ice Creamery and Refreshment Kiosk.

To date the family owned and operated business has been run by Tony Cheeseman with daughter Sara, from the mooring alongside the Archbishops' Palace Gardens (opposite the Crown Court) in Maidstone town centre. As of September the Kennedy family have been working with the Cheeseman's to ensure a seemless handover.
